Sponsor Wayne Keeton gives CCF6 kids a special space

Victor Hugo once said that; “To learn to read is to light a fire, every syllable that is spelt out is a spark.” If that is true, the sparks are now flying at CCF6 thanks to the generosity of Wayne Keeton, sponsor of Long Chan Dorn at CCF6. She and her friends now relax and learn in the colourful library he has funded.

Wayne was ‘excited to be part of the CCF family’ when he became a sponsor in 2008. Early in 2009 he wanted to do something extra for the place where his sponsored child lives and learns . He very quickly moved from thinking to doing and got in touch with CCF to discuss what he could do that would be most useful for CCF6 and its kids.

It wasn’t long before the Library Program came to mind and the idea of a special library space was proposed, discussed, costed, agreed and commissioned. Within weeks what had been a plain and featureless open area was the focus of intense curiosity and excitement as shelves and cabinets, tables, chairs and dividers arrived , were stacked, unpacked, assembled and arranged to create a space of light and colour. The addition of a flock of book-hungry CCF6 residents was the final touch, the last and essential element, in the transformation of Wayne’s good intentions into CCF6’ very own, very warm and welcoming library.
